The highest goals of public and /or national level health agencies should always be doing the greatest good when the totality of their efforts are summed up. This means that after all is said and done, fewer people die in a given year and more people are living healthier lives.
That is, less mortality and less morbidity (sickness).
How have the various agencies done in the US on those fronts? Terribly! They get an “F.” In 2021 excess deaths (above expected baselines) are higher than they should be, by far, and are even running above 2020 levels - the supposed height of the pandemic.
What are the reasons for this? We don’t know. For some reason the national health agencies are not only silent on the matter, but apparently completely uninterested
